NVIDIA Testing Cooling Modules For Next-Gen GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” Gaming GPUs, 250W To 600W Designs Being Cooked

NVIDIA has begun testing and certifying its next-generation cooling modules for its GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” Gaming GPUs.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” gaming GPUs are being baked: cooling modules are being tested with capacities up to 600W.

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” gaming GPUs are expected to launch in the second half of this year, likely targeting a late Q3 unveiling with a launch in Q4. Recent rumors have said that we will. Get the GeForce RTX 5080 first, then the GeForce RTX 5090 Which means that NVIDIA will focus on the high-end segment first before moving into the mainstream segment.

A recent statement from BenchLife indicates that NVIDIA has already started working on cooling solutions for its next-gen GPUs. Based on information from manufacturers of GPU cooling equipment, NVIDIA is already conducting preliminary testing and verification of cooling solutions and modules that will be used on GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” Gaming GPUs.

Also featured is a 4-phase plan that may focus on the most ambitious segment first, followed by high-end, mainstream, and budget graphics cards within the GeForce RTX 50 line of gaming graphics cards. More important information is that the highest wattage being tested is the 600W SKU while the lowest wattage is the 250W SKU. We've seen similar rumors since the GeForce RTX 30 series where GPUs were expected to sip TDPs north of 600W and Even up to 900W in prototype stages But they are just that. The original final designs are much more powerful and consume much less power.

For example, the GeForce RTX 4090 is rated at 450W but its actual power consumption in gaming mostly averages around 400W, and the same is the case with the rest of the lineup. In fact, the whole Ada Lovelace “GeForce RTX 40” GPU ended up being more power efficient than the previous Ampere generation. Still, NVIDIA has the know-how. Some crazy coolers designed during the prototype phase To check out the full limits of its gaming architecture.

On the other hand, according to information from the cooling module factory that we are aware of, NVIDIA is conducting related testing and certification of cooling modules for GeForce RTX 50 series graphics cards based on the Blackwell GPU architecture, and apparently it has Preparations have started. For GeForce RTX 50. Although there is no clear time point, there are currently about 4 projects underway, with the highest wattage being 600W and the lowest being 250W.

Whether there is a chance for NVIDIA to launch GeForce RTX 50 series graphics cards in 2024 is still hard to say for sure at this stage, but it is certain that AMD will launch Radeon RX with RDNA 4 GPU architecture in 2024. Will not launch 8000 series graphics cards.

Additionally, BenchLife reports that while there's a chance we'll see NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” gaming GPUs this year, it's unlikely that AMD will release any Radeon RX 8000 chips in 2024, so it looks like Team Green will do all the action. On the gaming side.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 50 “Blackwell” GPU Lineup (Preliminary) Specifications:

Graphics card GPU SMS / Cover Memory configuration TDP
GeForce RTX 5090? GB 202 192 / TBD 512-bit (GDDR7) 450W?
GeForce RTX 5090? GB 202 192 / TBD 384 bit (GDDR7) 400W?
GeForce RTX 5080? GB 203 96 / TBD 256 bit (GDDR7) 320W?
GeForce RTX 5070? GB 205 TBD 192-bit (GDDR7) 225W?
GeForce RTX 5060 Ti? GB 206 TBD 128-bit (GDDR6?) 160W?
GeForce RTX 5060 GB 207 TBD 128-bit (GDDR6?) 120W?

Which NVIDIA GeForce RTX 50 GPU are you most looking forward to?
